Nearly five years since I last posted here

I'm not sure if anyone still comes around these parts nowadays. I stumbled back on it, thinking about how much I missed the time spent here with such wonderful people.

I suppose I wanted to also leave evidence that I am still alive. I know that we have lost several people in the last few years at the various sites.

So, yes, I'm still alive. It's been nine years since my life changed drastically, after a stage 4 Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) cancer diagnosis, and told that I "had six months to a year" to live. I am grateful to still be here.

So much of life has changed since we've all lost touch. It would be so nice if we could get this site running at full speed ahead again.

Much love and joy are wished for all of you.

Hi corallevang , I have been thinking about you recently and wondering how you were. It's wonderful to see you back and posting again. Are you still running your blog site?

Hi. Yes, health. And age. Not always friends. I developed an unusual, rather horrible health condition, though not probably a fatal one. An overactive immune system required me to downsize it, by chemotherapy. And expensive medication costing thousands of dollars an injection, with 2 of them per month! The manufacturer said I qualify for no charge. And I'm doing well. I don't "pick up the men much" these days, to be sure. Welcome back.

Hi VinceSummers glad you qualified for the no charge version of your medication and that you are doing well.

Thanks. The strange thing is, I forget what I meant in my comment by "pick up the men"? Odd I can't remember...

MegL wrote on April 27, 2021, 7:38 AM

LOL. I did wonder what that meant.

VinceSummers wrote on April 27, 2021, 10:21 PM

NOW I remember. I meant I do not "pick up the pen much." I'm not writing much.

MegL wrote on April 28, 2021, 7:33 AM

Ah! Glad you remembered and it makes sense. Are you reading much? Doing anything else?

VinceSummers wrote on April 28, 2021, 5:01 PM

No. I write letters to people on Biblical topics, offering to teach them what it says, but nothing else. Mostly I watch older shows/movies and play computer games.

MegL wrote on April 29, 2021, 3:35 AM

You must know an awful lot about all the old movies!

It is always a good thing to be able to live longer in spite of a doctor's prognosis. Hope you are managing well, in spite of your condition.

I read this just now. Glad you qualify for coverage. I got your letter and have it on file. Please, feel free to mail me another snail mail any time.

Vince posted a link to a YT movie called The Young Doctor, or was it Doctors? I am looking for more of these to watch.

VinceSummers wrote on April 29, 2021, 9:53 PM

A truly wonderful movie - one of my very favorites. Each actor is a favorite, yes, even Dick Clark of American Bandstand fame!

It's a bit like visiting home. Lovely to see all the familiar names. So much has happened in life in these past few months. I will InShaAllah do my best to drop in once in a while just to stay hello and stay in touch. Stay blessed everyone.

Hey Miss Coral! Nice to see you stopping by. I pop my head up out of my gopher hole occasionally, too. All thanks to Meg for keeping the lights on.

AliCanary wrote on May 22, 2021, 4:30 PM

Hey, it's good seeing you, too! It's pretty amazing that we both decided to visit on the same day.

How many times you've been already getting paid from this platform??
#STOP Writing Here because this is a SCAM PROGRAM!!!

Welcome once again. I also get lost and come back here. I have a great friend in MegL

MegL wrote on August 24, 2021, 3:06 PM

This is NOT a scam program. This site does not pay for contributions because there is no income, due to people apparently clicking on ads to try and increase income, so the advertising income was lost. This site is kept running at no cost to anyone else. You are welcome to post here but you will not get paid.

AliCanary wrote on August 30, 2021, 7:36 PM

Don't be a dork. It's been made quite plain that the site doesn't currently pay, if you have been paying the LEAST bit of attention. We all understand that. We write here for the pleasure of sharing and staying in touch with one another. By the way, we DID get paid when it was an income-generating platform.

Wow. Big congratulations to you!
